Anyone want to boycott the opening game of the NHL season? Not me!
First and foremost we want professional hockey around so our grandchildren can watch it. The game must be protected so it survives for years to come. But, so far the individuals in positions to accomplish that goal have failed miserably. The recent lockout is an example that is almost too obvious. They have bumbled it to the brink of failure. The players and owners both equally share the responsibility for this fiasco. And now it rests on the shoulders of the fans to dig them out.
Our response to the lockout will determine if the sport can succeed. OneGame.ca believes that with the right set of actions the fans can set a precedent that will affect not only professional hockey, but other professional sports as well. We must make a bold statement that says, “We will not tolerate this anymore!” Another lockout cannot be allowed.
